My wife and I stayed at this suite for 8 days in October 2011 with our toddler and our nanny. We were attending a conference at the Hawaii Conference center, less than a block away. Our toddler and nanny went daily to the Ala Moana beach, one of the most kid-friendly beaches on Oahu; with toddler in tow, it was about a 10 min. walk to the beach: one block, across an intersection, and then park the rest of the way. There is a causeway on the second floor of Ala Moana Hotel to the massive mall next door; extremely easy to access. The mall has a huge food court, many other food services, and a full grocery store. We took out a couple of nights and cooked in a couple of nights. The suite's kitchen has plenty of supplies for cooking, including pots and pans and dishes. The suite was very roomy, with plenty of area to spread out. The views from the 33rd floor are amazing: at night, we left the drapes open to admire the night lights. The hotel's pool was well kept and safe. The fitness center had plenty of space, tons of machines, and a full set of dumb bells: was never busy. Overall, an excellent facility that I would highly recommend.
